Doctors Downplay Addictive Properties of Lip Balm in New Investigative Report

There’s a new investigative report about the harmful effects of Lip Balm Addiction from PhillyVoice. The investigators spoke with doctors who downplayed the issue:

I don’t think using it makes you use it more. Some like the way it feels and that makes them use it more, to maintain that smoothness.
Dr. Nazanin Saedi

The practical advice on the issue was provided by our own Kevin C. who said that medicated lip balms are designed to dry out your lips. It says so right on the package. And then people will use it more and more and more.

Lastly, representatives of Chap Stick and Carmex denied the claims that their products are addictive. Despite the evidence we see every day on the streets. So sad.
